Definition of A Credit Hour

Credits given for subjects pursued at Southeastern are measured in semester hours, and all transferred hours will be accepted at their semester hour equivalence.

Evaluation of Transfer Credit

In no case will Southeastern be obligated to accept transfer credits from other institutions unless those subjects qualify the student for the course of study offered by this institution, nor will transferred credits be accepted for graduation requirements unless they are satisfactory substitutes for subjects listed as requirements in this catalog.

Credit from all institutions accredited by a CHEA and/or U. S. Department of Education recognized agency will be received at face value, but all work accepted from that institution must comply with Southeastern Baptist College’s satisfactory academic progress policy and procedures.

Credits given for subjects pursued at Southeastern are measured in semester hours, and all transferred hours will be accepted at their semester hour equivalency.

Credit earned through educational experiences in the armed services and military schools will be awarded as recommended by the American Council on Education. Each student must take at least 15 hours at Southeastern to qualify for an associate degree and 30 hours to qualify for a bachelor’s degree.

Credits transferred from accredited institutions are reproduced on the permanent records of Southeastern Baptist College. Only courses accepted toward a degree at Southeastern are used to determine GPA. Some D’s may be considered for transfer if the resulting GPA is at least 2.0.

NOTE: A student at Southeastern Baptist College who plans to transfer to a four-year college may enroll in courses equivalent to those taken by freshmen and sophomores at the four-year college. That student should obtain a copy of the catalog of the four-year college and use it as a guide in selecting courses at Southeastern. The student should contact the four-year college and receive a written guarantee that credits will transfer.
